Creative Pathways Theatre Arts Edinburgh



Costume dept. in Edinburgh have been full steam ahead this week preparing for
the IA Fringe show ‘After Aria’. They have started making masks for our actors,
taking inspiration from Commedia Dell’arte, a type of masked performance that
originated in renaissance Venice, which will form much of the structure of the
final show. Look out for more updates soon!




Design had a local artist visit last week as part of their Arts Award projects.
Scott Methven brought in his large scale ink and pen pieces for the guys to
look at, inspiring them to get into stenciling and visual arts.

“It was great to meet a local and
successful artist, he’s going to be one of my Arts Heroes for my Arts Award!”-
Paul, Set Design group.

days creating characters and scenes, they spent one day with the rest of the

Artist Mentoring Programme –

The AMP’s celebrated the end of one of their group
projects with the community of Parkhead at a special launch event to mark the
unveiling of their mural. This took place alongside a commissioned mural with BBC Scotland and
London based artists Good Wives and Warriors. Jack, Susan and Anna from the Artist Mentoring Programme worked with children from Quarrybrae Primary School, older people fro Crail Street sheltered housing and young people from Playbusters in Parkhead to design and paint the mural, which was inspired by
the pop art movements, patterns and bold colour. The final result was this amazing splash of
colour which was created by the children of primary 6 in Quarrybrae.
